Personal Message from fbb
Mrs fbb has been diagnosed with severe arthritis and in the queue for a hip replacement. She is struggling with both pain and mobility so fbb, like the splendid husband that he is (modest as ever!) has taken over all driving and all significant catering. Whilst time can be made for writing blogs, even for research, the fbb performance needle ...
But the memory is as agile as it can be for an old crock of nearly 77, and an envelope from correspondent Keith brought a joy and a delight to the old man's weary psyche. It was a selection of timetable books from Go Ahead North East.
Yes, fbb did write "timetable books". The three that arrived were for North Tyne, Hexham and Consett areas. When compiling the Great Britain Bus Timetable, the north east was the area that gave the old man the most angst. Working largely from leaflets, it was difficult to put it all together geographically.
